    Although it always tastes great, I've tried this recipe 3 times and it always over-rises during the 'rise' phase and collapses during baking. This is a typical symptom of forgetting the salt so on try 2 I was SURE to add the salt. Same problem. I gave it one last try with same result.  -  30 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Indeed, this bread was very robust, had the good flavor of whole wheat + rye, and a very, very subtle taste of molasses. Next time I bake it though, I'll use the whole wheat setting of my machine, so that it rises a bit more. P.S.: as already mentioned, dough will rise hugely during the first knead, but not that much after the second one.  -  07 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
